(ANSA) - PARIS, MAY 06 - France has sent two patrol boats near the island of Jersey, where about fifty French fishing boats have been protesting since this morning. It is learned from the maritime authorities. On the spot, London has already sent two warships.
The French Secretary of State for European Affairs, Clément Beaune, told AFP that the British "maneuvers" around Jersey "must not intimidate us". Specifying that he had spoken to his British counterpart, David Frost, Beaune added: "Our will is not to feed tensions but to have a quick and complete application of the post-Brexit fisheries agreement".
